Rainy Day Rule-Breaking

Monday, April 23, 2012 11:26 PM

You guys. We just had the most ridiculous rainstorm. It lasted at least 30 hours, and it rained hard — harder than I thought it could do here in Maine. And I'm used to those Florida summer thunderstorms, the ones that come at 3 p.m. every day and sometimes feel like they'll flay your skin off. But those never last more than an hour, and usually more like 10-20 minutes.

So anyway, I knew I wanted to wear pants today. And to keep the hems out of puddles, I violated the principle of Perfect Pant Length by pairing these pants — which should be worn only with flats — with a pair of kitten-heeled loafers. I also pulled my hair back, since it would have frizzed up anyway, and compensated for the somewhat masculine feel of the ensemble with some extra makeup (eyeshadow!).
